Earth Day

eBay Car Show Highlights Green Options

Today at the eBay campus in San Jose, the eBay Green Team hosted a green car show. On display were several electric vehicles from BMW, Chevy and Nissan.

With Earth Day right around the corner and fuel prices being what they are, green vehicles are definitely on people's minds. This would seem like the perfect opportunity for eBay Motors publishers to capture some mindshare and promote hybrid and electric vehicles, as well as an assortment of parts & accessories.

If you haven't watched it yet, don't forget to check out this week's ePN TV with Jill Primost of the Sustainable Commerce Team about ways that eBay is getting involved in all sorts of environmentally-conscious ways on a year-round basis.

How does Earth Day and this eco-consciousness affect the way you promote your business during this time of year? Do you do anything special to appeal to the environmental set? We'd love to get your comments below.

ePN TV: Jill Primost Talks Sustainable Commerce at eBay

On April 22nd, the world will be celebrating Earth Day. The hope is that we’ll use this day to reflect on the choices we make in our day-to-day lives that affect our planet, and take actions that can improve its health and longevity for future generations. To that end, we thought it would be cool to talk to Jill Primost from our Sustainable Commerce Team to talk about some ways that eBay is pitching in and doing our part year-round.

“We realized there was a need to help our buyers and sellers find out about all the great ways that eBay was helping them buy and sell in a more sustainable way,” says Primost. “Green consumers are really valuable consumers. We have a growing base of over 300,000 Green Team members – buyers and sellers on eBay who pledge to be green shoppers and be part of all the great sustainable initiatives that eBay has going on.”
